Zoom ECM-3 Reviews

The cable length is incorrect

The cable length is incorrect, Written in the description is 9.8' .. In fact, the length of the cable is 118' And even the packaging is written 3 meters This is a mistake from b&h , and I am unhappy I wanted the short cable

Very useful, well-built cable for off-recorder mics

By William

I appreciated the small contact covers which were included to protect them while not in use. The unit performs exactly as I expected, allowing off-recorder microphone capsule placement up to approx 10 feet from the H6. NIce to be able to also store by simply connecting the cable ends- this is a secure connection which I use as my default while traveling. I wish that it was less expensive, but otherwise I'm completely satisfied with this cable.

Useful addition to the Zoom family

This may not be an item I need often but it is unique in being able to get the stereo signal of a zoom head back to the recorder from a remote location, allowing you to place the mic in tight spots for filming. This accessory has high build quality that is typical of Zoom's recent products . As another reviewer pointed out, the main drawback is that Zoom puts the gain controls on the mic heads, so once it is in place, there is no way of controlling the volume from the recorder. Another inconvenience is that the cable is on the stiff side, making a mic mounted on a small tripod less stable. This is an accessory that makes your Zoom modular recorder more versatile.

Extension Cable for Zoom H6

By Jack
Rated 4 out of 5

The extension cable ECM-3 is a needed feature for the recorder since otherwise you can't monitor the levels of your top capsule. Now I can separate the mic from the dials and use the shot gun mic off the recorder. It is very expensive so I had to give only 4 stars for that. Although it is high quality, the price should be dropped by around $30-$40 below what it sells for. This is why we have so many oversees knock offs.

Just what we needed

We use the Zoom H6 constantly and being able to move the mics close to the subjects with the extension cable while operating the recorder behind the camera is a real plus.

Zoom ECM-3 Extension Cable with Action Camera Mount (9.8')

This cable extension for the zoom mic capsules is handy when you want to place the mic capsule in a different location so you can keep your actual field recorder close to you for settings changes. The extension cable is long enough and the action mount comes with a swivel base with a 1/4-20 female thread on the bottom.

Loose mount, and glued tightening knob, ruined a whole days shooting. Not very impressive for a right out of the box product like this. Zoom customer support are slooow.

great...but how do I reach the gain aall the way over there?

By Jonathan

This is a great addition to the Zoom H5, H6, or others in the capsule line up. It not only provides length for the microphone from the recorder, but you can also use it so that you can mount the microphone TOWARDS yourself so you can self monitor the recorder screen (my reason for buying). MINUS ONE STAR for not planning the capsule system better so that gain controls are on the unit near the sound recordist rather than near the talent. It is this one flaw in the capsule system that will most definitely prevent me from further investing into the ZOOM capsule ecosystem...because they will eventually learn from that mistake and improve the next generation.

Can you connect two of these together?

The Zoom ECM-3 is not designed to be daisy chained, and would not be able to guarantee proper functionality if more than a single extension is used.

Is there a boom pole that is recommended for this set-up, or would a C-Stand work? I have C-stands but I'm concerned about conductive noise. Thanks!

I use Rode and K-Tek Avalon boom poles, and have been satisfied with their performance.
